1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium sized bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon for 30 seconds, then set aside. In a separate bowl, use an electric mixer to whip butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until well mixed and fluffy. Add the egg yolks one by one, then the vanilla, rum extract, and eggnog.
2. With your mixer set on low speed, slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, and mix until well combined.
3. Use your hands or a spoon to scoop out tablespoon sized pieces of dough to form into balls, and set on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Space cookies about 2 inches apart.
4. Bake for 11-13 minutes. Allow cookies to cool completely before frosting.
5. To make the eggnog frosting: In a small bowl, whip butter with an electric mixer until very pale and fluffy. Add the rum extract, and 3 tablespoons of eggnog. Then slowly add in the powdered sugar. Add more eggnog to make thinner, more powdered sugar to make thicker.
